. this is hundred percent politics 100 percent midterm elections. it's about making republicans out to be the bad guys. there is a proposed legislation, i talked about this on my radio show and i found articles like this one from february 28, rick cline an obama supporter, pointing out that the republicans offered obama the keys to undo all of this, to soften the blow, make sure the money we cut was quality of life improvement programs. he is has decided to inflict as much pain as possible on the american people for a purely political reasons. >> megyn: leslie? >> how much time do i have. i am touched that you and fellow republicans are so concerned about my traveling from l.a. to orlando with two toddlers tomorrow with an additional two and a half hour delay. thank you. i know how concerned you are. no, chris, you guys had an opportunity when you talk about opportunities to sit down and not even have the sequester happen. do you remember when the president listed all the areas that would be affected with cuts one of which was air traffic control. you also remember republicans saying at that time
